The Food Club arose out of the observation that there exists a lack of space to discuss, create and collectively get excited about food. This club was envisioned by three food enthusiasts; Mehak Sood, Tanvi Shah and Nishtha Ganotra. The club plans to host workshops for people to come together and create food in cooking workshops as well as appreciate it through means of photography, blogging and so on. The Food Club as SSLA shows great promise in cementing itself as a part of SSLA.
